Xenophobia in relation to culture

Xenophobia means the fear or hatred for the strangers or the foreigners. Xenophobia in cultures occurs in many different regions of the world, especially with the regions with the rich cultures. It’s the feeling that is developed to hate other cultures or discriminate it. But the love for one’s culture is so intense and feels it is the most superior. It is always increasing with the increase in Xenophobia with other cultures.

Xenophobia usually helps in the preservation of one’s own culture but it usually leads to discrimination or hatred to the other cultures. It’s reversible with Xenophilia, which is the love for the other culture and feels that one’s own culture is inferior.

I believe this is the era of both the Xenophobia and Xenophilia, where different people have various perspective and attraction in relation to cultures. Some people don’t have both, they don’t love neither hate their own or other cultures.

Culture is what is used to be in the past, when the settlements were so isolated and not connected to each other. So in next few generations the world will probably have culture of information and technology, weather one is Xenophobia or Xenophilia  and the museums shall have many cultures to represent.

  2. I enjoyed your post. I wrote on xenophobia, too! (I suppose there aren't so very many words that begin with X.) I liked your point that intense love for one's own culture can increase one's xenophobia. I suspect, too, that such intense love may also be a reaction to the devaluation of or threat to one's culture by others, either in the present or in the past.
    Thank you. (Nearly done with this Challenge!)

  3. Hi, Choki. A lot of Americans claim that America has no culture of its own, but how wrong they are. We have a rich and vibrant culture, although it can trace its ancestry to other cultures (for example, you can trace Rock and Roll to Africa if you go far enough back). So yes, I have an intense love of my culture, but in my case, it doesn't lead to xenophobia. I am fascinated by other cultures and people and love learning about them. I guess I just love culture in general, whether mine or others.' Great post.

    1. Hi Jer, Thank you for your good words. I too believe America got cultures too. I really appreciate your love for your own and other cultures too. Basically I meant to say in my post as I have written is that Xenophobia with other culture leads to increase in love with one's culture in general. So if we are xenophobic, we are for sure going to dislike other cultures. I believe the intense love for one's culture will increase with the increase in xenophobia with other culture as I mentioned in my post. Anyways xenophobia is thing to be not followed as we as a human need to respect other cultures too for they are same as our culture.
